It's Official: Chad Ocho Cinco

Chad Johnson officially changed his name to Chad Ocho Cinco late last week, and now, the Bengals are recognizing him as such. From the Cincinnati Bengals' official roster page:

Even his player page has been updated (minus the write-up).

From the Bengals:

"Effective today, the Bengals begin the process of listing the former Chad Johnson as Chad Ocho Cinco for all club business, per the legal change of his surname effected in Florida. The list of appropriate changes will include the player wearing the name Ocho Cinco on the back of his jersey for Sunday's season opener at Baltimore."

The No. 85 Ocho Cinco jersey could go on sale at the Paul Brown Stadium Pro Shop as early as Wednesday, said Monty Montague, the Bengals merchandise manager.


When does "entertaining" go too far and become "kinda crazy"?
